I know the vid is from way back in the day, but anyone know what bass he's playing?
Status with a headstock? Or Jaydee?
Looks sorta like a Status, but i cant realy tell
I think it's a Status S2 headed 5 string.
Status Bass. Can't remember the model, but still sold on the Status site, I believe, along with Mark King "artist" models.
The song is "Overtime" off the album, Guaranteed.
It's a Status Matrix. Mark used the 5 string for a couple of songs on the Guaranteed tour, but other than that, you'll be hard pressed to find any evidence of him ever having used a 5 string live. He apparently prefers the easy playability of 4 strings.
Can't blame him for that
It was a Status Matrix Empathy 5
He used a MM S'Ray 5 in the studio for a lot of stuff that would go below low D (which he tuned his E string to).
He's quoted someplace that he thought MM basses were some of the best recorded.
Check this page out for all his bass info:
Everything from Status to Moon to MM to Alembic to Fender with a Wal & Zon thrown in for fun!!!!
And i thought Alembics were his sound
He obviously sounds very similar with all those basses.
